Bob Hunter

Thank you for visiting my page! This year, I am participating in the Michael J. Fox Foundation's (MJFF) Tour de Fox Cycling Series for Parkinson's Research.

An estimated five million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease (PD) — a chronic neurodegenerative disorder. In the United States, 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone. There is no known cure for Parkinson’s disease. As the world’s largest nonprofit funder of PD research, MJFF is working to change this.

As many of you know and some of you are finding out by reading my page, I am one of the 5 million people living with Parkinson’s disease. I had my first symptom ten years ago ( foot cramped while running on the treadmill) and since that time there has been a continuous need to adjust my life to deal with the degenerative nature of the disease. These modifications to my life include medication management , downsizing my life ( career, recognizing my limitations, etc..) and dealing with the various movement and fatigue challenges that are the hallmarks of the disease. I hope to continue to be proactive with a healthy attitude in managing this disease and it would be great if disease modifying or improvements in the medication management are discovered and introduced. This is why foundations like MJFF are important to me and many other individuals, families and friends and why I am asking for the support of my community to help MJFF achieve their vision.

MJFF is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson's disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson's today.

Your gift will make a real difference: 100 percent of Tour de Fox Lone Star ride proceeds will go directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation’s high-impact research programs.

Help me move a cure for Parkinson's disease forward by making a donation today.

Thank you for your support! - Bob
